This project is a 2 story Colonial built in 1964 which is dated both inside & out, in desperate need of some TLC. While it is a candidate for a tear down, the developer & I chose to keep the existing structure, gut & remodel the interior & create additions to the front & rear. The house is designed as a shingle style house, with a classic gambrel roof & a front porch. Materials consist of cedar shingle siding, fiberglass shingles & lead coated standing seam roofing.

A detached 2 car garage was designed to complement the house, with both being constructed simultaneously.

Modern farmhouse addition/alteration Weston, CT

Project location: Weston, CT
Project type: addition/alteration
Floor area: 4000 square feet
Completion date: 2015
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.

This is a house built in the ’70’s which was in need of updating & remodeling both inside & out. Both the first floor & second floor is to be remodeled, and the basement is to be finished to provide much needed additional living space (due to 3 teenage boys). The existing deck & screened porch on the rear of the house is being removed and replaced by a stone terrace, finished with bluestone pavers & a stainless steel cable rail. Space below the terrace will provide storage for outdoor furniture during the off season.

The front elevation is being improved by creating a covered entry, a mud room entry, wider windows above the entry & 3 dormers across the main roof. The right side elevation is very prominent as it’s seen upon approaching the house, which is being improved by the addition of new garage doors along with a canopy & a bay above the doors. The rear elevation is improved by shifting windows to align with those below, allowing for some symmetry which was previously lacking.
